MILLTOWN, NJ, December 01, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Guardian Roommate L.L.C. is a marketing company engaged in the dynamic Do It Yourself security marketplace. The company has recently signed an agreement to market a new DIY Security product that has been greatly accepted by police departments across the country. While home security has found a new audience in the DIY marketplace, the sudden exponential growth in popularity is on the verge of creating a back breaking workload for law enforcement. The workload has grown to such a dimension that many towns and cities simply do not have the funds to meet the demand. As claimed by the Texas Police Chief Association "Alarm calls are historically over 98 percent false and false alarm calls represent a waste of taxpayer funds, create a burden on department resources, and cause complacency that may result in officer injury or death." An evaluation of alarm calls in 2008 made by the San Jose Police Department determined that the cost of arrests inspired by alarm calls was $331,000 PER Arrest! Of 12,450 alarm calls costing $662,000 in manpower 2 arrests were made as a result of the calls.
Many Cities including Baltimore - Las Vegas - Salt Lake City - Grand Prairie Texas as well as many smaller towns and villages have instituted policies requiring eyewitness or video observation in order to provide a dispatch. Grand Prairie Police Chief, Steven Dye, has stated that "Video verified alarm responses have shown apprehension rates of over 19% with many over 50%, as compared to less than a 1% rate on non video alarms". When you look at the case study offered by San Jose it is easy to see that the reality is far less than 1%.
Faced with these facts it is easy to see that it is only a matter of time before alarms without video verification will be 100% obsolete and left entirely without response. New products from Honeywell Security and Fire and marketed direct to consumers by Guardian Roommate L.L.C. via the online website Getadragonfly.com provides a solution with an affordable DIY product. The dragonfly product is the burglar alarm that is powering a revolution. Dragonfly is the only system of its type with every sensor containing a camera. When any sensor is triggered a short video clip is immediately sent to a users smart phone and/or a central monitoring station. A user has the opportunity to interrupt and prevent a false dispatch if the video reveals activity of a family member or pet. The user can also escalate the alert to professional dispatch if the video clip reveals unauthorized activity. Dragonfly is the only DIY video verified product offering professional dispatch service.
While many municipal agencies will still respond to alarm alerts they will also prioritize video verified alarm alerts to a level 1 handling for immediate "Crime in Progress" response. These DIY video verified alarm system alerts have proven to reduce costs per arrest from burglar alarm responses so much that they can expected to be the norm in the very near future.
Honeywell Security and Fire is the world's largest manufacturer of electronic security and life safety technologies. Honeywell has provide products for commercial buildings, industrial sites and homes for more than 70 years, with systems installed in millions of buildings and homes worldwide.
